6:45 am

6:47 am
this is pretty much wrapped up. firefighters getting ready to clear the scene. from where i'm standing i can see this is primarily a garage fire with damage to the top of the house. let's take another look at some of that video from copter 4. we're being told by crews here with west metro that this call came in around 5:30. there was work being done at the garage inside this house and that likely caused some fire by accident. it spread, destroyed a car that is inside the garage, and also spread up to the top of house. primarily to the outside of one of the bedrooms. enough damage to keep the homeowner away from the home until they can get those remares -- repairs done. no one was injured and investigators will try to figure out what the cause was. like in lakewood -- live in lakewood, shawn chitness, cbs4 news. we have a new round of protests in many cities around the country over donald trump's election win.
